Definately a cracking looking boat, really do like the colour scheme!

Talking about getting on the plane, mine leaps onto the plane when I open up now, from standstill, I can do 0-50mph in about 8 seeconds or so! Very very pleased with my new engines

Ahh - your boat LOOKS bigger than that.

Maybe not though - probably down to the 4 blade 19" prop - acceleration is somewhat brisk to say the least but top speed isn't what it should be - not such a prob this time of year though!!!

Superb looking Rib. The ribcraft has to be my favourite looking rib, with allround performance and handling. 5.8 good choice.

Any chance of a few more pics

Incedently came back after a beer and a seriously scabby ferro cement motor sailer had moved into my space and rafted me on the outside of him!! no damage or teeth would have been lost.

Yes, very nice. Just need to learn how to tie the thing to a dock properly.

If it is, thats the pontoon I was bashing with a 38 foot Benetau last week. It certainly looks familier.
